Leon Wankum

Introduced to Bitcoin in 2012, Leon was one of the first Financial Economics Students (M.S.c) to write a thesis about bitcoin in 2015.

The work focussed on how Bitcoin can help citizens in underdeveloped regions currently excluded from the existing financial system and its potential for the remittance market.

In 2012, during a discussion on the Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises in Leon's philosophy and ethics degree, he became interested in Bitcoin as a peer-to-peer decentralized electronic cash system.

Leon is a HODLer active in real estate and venture capital. He currently specializes in developing strategies for real estate investors to buy and hold bitcoin.
